  1. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine. Stir in mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon pepper seasoning.
  3. Place each ear of corn on a 13x12 inch piece of HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil. Drizzle with butter mixture. Wrap loosely, leaving space for the expansion of steam, and seal.
  4. Grill over medium coals for 15 to 20 minutes, or until corn is tender. Small ears will take less time, and larger ears may take more. Carefully unwrap foil, and serve.

This was good but I guess I had higher expectations. I think the mustard overpowered the side dish...and I would have rather tasted the corn. Might try again to tinker with....but still good. ...

Wonderful, Wonderful Wonderful. I have used this recipe three times and each time it gets better. Thanks

We grilled this recipe almost a year ago, and my boyfriend and I still talk about it! Very good, I was very very skeptical of the horse radish, as I HATE anything that is too powerful and over ...

I have made this several times, to be honest I expected more zip out of it. It is good I guess i expected the flavors to be more. SO those of you that have shyed away because of the ingredients ...
